Enrollment Grows Despite Chaos

EfffSCOpE Vol. XIV, No. 1

San Marcos, California

School Leaders Meet At Cuyamaca Retreat Palomar's first Leadership Conference resulted in 39 recommendations which have been submitted to the Student Council. The conference, attended by 48 students, was held over a three day period at Camp Cuyama ca.

Monday, September 11, 1961

New Library Time New hours and facilities at the Palomar library go into effect immediately. The Library will remain open 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Friday. In the library now are a periodicle room (l2), reading room (13), and a debate room (l4). Conference rooms are available in the library also.

Three workshop sessions were held and at a general assembly the reports and recommendations were given. At last week's Student Council meeting, the first of these recommendations was considered. Subsequent sessions of the council will resolve the remammg recommendations. Workshop topics included communications, homecoming, spring festival, judicial systems, women 's activities, men's activities and orientation week. The weekend conference began with speeches at a general assembly in Hall of the Winds at the camp. ASB President John Diepersloot spoke on the purpose of the conference. "It is actually part of a bigger plan to promote leadership for the country's future," said Diepersloot. College President Dr. john Dunn spoke on the objectives of the school. He said there would be 1200 objectives at Palomar this year and that the school's job is to help develop each individual. Swimming, hiking, dancing and a talent show were also included in the activities.

Spencer States Palomar Policy On Withdrawals

At present, over 900 have enrolled in day classes and 300 in night school. Last school year started with an enrollment of approximately 750. The building program on the campus has been delayed because of revisions made in architectual plans. Change orders, which are required for planning revisions, require more work which demands more time, said Dr. John Schettler, business manager. Originally the Ries Construction Company of San Diego had contracted to finish the administration building on July 5. The rest of the buildings were scheduled for completion on August 7. In spite of the 路 confusion, registration and orientation week were carried on. Plans for orientation week, which included an orientation assembly last Wednesday and a Freshman class assembly on Thursday, were made at the recent leadership conference at Camp Cuyama ca.

A student may withdraw from college (from all classes) up to ten days preceding the final examinations. He will receive a grade ofW or WP.

Enrollment as of Thursday was running 150 over last year's figure, according to Dean Robert L. Burton. In spite of construction difficulties classes will open in the originally planned locations, and enrollment is expected to rise close to the 1200 level.

Dean Announces Enrollment Deadline Th~ last day on which a stu路 dent may enroll in a class is Friday, Sept. 22, Robert L. Burton, dean of admissions, said. All program changes involving signing up for a new course have to be made before that date, he said.

New Dean, Teachers

The Te~escope has been asked by Dr. Terrel Spencer, Dean of Students, to print the official withdrawal policy of Palomar College. The policy is as follows: Any student wishing to withdraw from a class must file official withdrawal forms in the registrar's office. If he fails to do this, he will receive a grade of F in the class. 路 A veteran who does not follow proper withdrawal procedure will have veterans' allowances immediately suspended.

A grade of W (withdrawal passing) or of WF (withdrawal failing) will be given for each class dropped after the third week of classes and before the end of the eleventh week. The grade the student receives will depend on whether he is passing or failing at the time of the withdrawal.

Other disturbances throughout the night included Jesse Lomelli'simitations of a police siren. The next day was calm after the hectic night. The various workshop groups settled down to business.

The absence of his VW rath~r worried the new Dean of Students who comes to Palomar from Texas. He searched all over the camp for the little bug, but it was nowhere to be found. Finally, later that evening, he gave up and decided to go to the student talent show in the Hall of the Winds.

Comments In the weeks preceding opening day at Palomar, many Freshmen wandered about campus, searching for counseling rooms, offices and registration materials. Some freshmen were to be found in the ASB store, some in the library. Others were waiting for appointments, and many were just plain lost. The Telescope interviewed some of these seemingly aimless wanderer to find out just what their aims are at Palomar College. Pretty Kaaren Drieschman of Vista was the first to be questioned in a Telescope conference. Miss Drieschman says that she hopes to meet new people and to learn about people and things. · Kaaren wishes "to discover new vistas in science on my way to my goal" (her goal is to become a veternarian.) She looks forward to much better teaching methods at Palomar than she was able to find in Los Angeles. Blond haired Carlie James who comes to Palomar from San Dieguito also looks forward to meeting many new people. "I'm going to school here to get an education," says Carlie. She expects to enjoy going to Palomar because "it's about the best college of its type in the state, and besides that, it's close to home." For her future, as Carlie puts it: "I'm gonna find me a millionaire." Any available millionaires are invited to get in touch with Carlie at any time. Also from San Dieguito is Mike Harnada who hopes to find Palomar a "convenient institute of higher learning." Mike expects to have "a lot of fun," also. Mike commented, "I'm really looking forward to painting the P on the mountain." · Gordon Yuen of Fallbrook plans to enjoy meeting new people as well as to see many of his old friends around the campus. Gordon also mentioned that "1 am looking forward to all the social and athletic activities as well as to increasing my education."

Where's The Business Office? Are you looking for the business office? New students have been dropping into our journalism office all week, apparently searching for the business office. So, as a service to the students, the Telescope prints directions to that place. On the west end of campus there is a building with BUSINESS OFFICE printed above its front door. Behind the building is a temporary parking lot. The side of the building parallels the newly paved parking lot. The front door faces the flag poll. To reach the building from the Cafeteria (sometimes the Student Union), a student must walk straignt past the Library See Business, page 4

Carter Interview

New Mentor Believes Football Is Education Coach Stu Carter, a man who believes football is education, and a man who has been educated in football, laid down his long range plans for a strong and rough Palomar Comet squad to Telescope reporters last Friday. Carter who prides himself on being "a stickler for the little things" believes that the two biggest little things for Palomar this year are condition and discipline. The new grid mentor has no doubt that he will get both. He feels that he has a staff which is high in moral a nd that his team will wa nt "to do as much as they can." "We are getting results," accord ing to Carter, "We want our men to be dedicated to football." More tha n anything else, the coaching staff at Palomar needs football players. With enough players in good condition and at peak morale the new coach feels that Palomar's chances of becoming a really first class junior college football team are good for 1962. Coach Carter didn't wish to predict anything for this year until after the opening game. But he did mention some players who he feels are really out to do a top notch job. Included in Carter's list of top players are: Ron Colton, Quarterback; Gary Shultz, Slotback; Mark Martin , Closed End; Jim Martin, Fullback; Richard Green, Halfback; Ed Quigley, Right Guard; and Mike Moreno.

Dr. John Schettler Lists ASB Budget At $32,603 The Associated Student Body budget for the coming year is $32,603, with most of the money coming from ASB activity fees and the ASB Bookstore, Dr. John D. Schettler, business manager of the colThe estimated income of $34,892 will be spent in support of 34 student enterprises , leaving at the end of the year an unappropriated surplus and reserve fund of $2,289. ASB activity fees accounted for $17 ,500 of the estimated income, and the ASB Bookstore expe.c ts to contribute $9,200 to the student fund. Largest single expenditure is for salaries, at $5,202; second largest is for football , at $3,145, and third largest for printing of the Telescope , at $2.716.

The Telescope this year will increase its number of issues to 20, as compared to 14 last year, and Editor Robert Newman said he expects to see an improvement in quality of printing, especially in reproduction of photographs, as a result of a change to an offset printing method.

Loans Students wishing to apply for loans should apply to Dr. Terrel, Spencer, dean of student personnel. Dr. Spencer said loans are made only fo r emergency purposes.

Business toward the other end of campus. He will pass the new building which is partially wrapped in brown pa-p er. Once past the new building, he will find himself facing some beat looking structures. The one on his left will be the one with BUSINESS OFFICE printed above its door. But that building is not really the Business Office. It is the Journalism building. So he won't want to go there.

All Students Pay Their ASB Activity Fees Nearly 100 per cent of the students enrolled for the fall semester at Palomar Col· lege paid their Associated Student Body activity fees, Dr. Terrel Spencer said. Dr. Spencer, dean of student personnel , said the high percentage of payments "reflects that the students have a genuine appreciation for student activities and is an indication of better school spirit than we have had before." According to the lasi figures given him, only three stud ents had refused to pay the fee. Others who did not have the money agreed to work out the cost, which is $15 for students registered for eight un its or more. The chief activities and benefits derived by students from the ASB fees are free admission to athletic contests, a 10 per cent discount on books bought at the ASB bookstore, student insurance to pay part of hospitalization and doctors' bills for students injured on or en route to or from the campus, a reduced rate at dances, and copies of the Telescope. 1--If_h_ e-tu_ _r n_s_a_r_o_u_n_d_t_o_ fa_c_e_t_h_e-1 new building, the one with all the brown paper on it, he will be facing the building in which the business office is located.
